Patient Testimonials

It is a pleasure going to the dentist when it is Dr. Pedlar. I know his credentials are A 1 and his diagnosis are accurate and his work is always excellent. I have been a patient of Dr. Larry Pedlar and now Dr. Patrick Pedlar for many years. The offices are pristine and follow all the present day guidelines. The staff are wonderful , caring , efficient and excellent. I always recommend them when asked in my present circumstances at LaSalle retirement home.

-Janice D.

I am delighted with the quality of the service I receive on every visit! Perhaps even more important is the fact I feel truly 'cared for' from the moment I walk into the beautifully appointed, comfortable office and with every person in the practice. Everyone I have introduced to this wonderful health care team has been well treated, and I am very happy to stay with this kind, professional team. Thank you for years as my trusted health partner! I have a wonderful smile as proof of your great skill!

-Laura L.

I trust Dr. Pedlar and his team to provide exceptional care. The advice and treatment I have received are always accurate. I never have to return for the same issue twice. Thank you. I highly recommend this dental practice.

-Lynn C.

So impressed with how well you all have adapted to COVID in re-fitting your offices and procedures. Incredibly professional and thorough but I would expect nothing less from your team, as it's been my experience with the Pedlar group for the past 50 years. PS: Marlene as always did a great job.
